super terrible

In addition to being brutally terrible, Pixels is also deeply misogynistic.

I'd seen other commentary to that effect in reviews, but this article gives examples and reasons.

Enjoy some quotes from other reviews. My favourite is, "an overwhelmingly sad experience" – Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.

minor spoiler eta: "So Pixels ends with the only likeable character and the only non-bullshit incarnation of its own premise [Q*Bert] blinking out of existence so that one of two vaguely prominent women characters in the entire cast can serve as a literal trophy. Holy fucking shit." -- MovieBob pulls no punches.
